Crock Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken.



Tonight, again, I’m out doing a presentation and won’t be home for dinner.  Coincidentally, I’ve also had several requests for more crock pot recipes, so I thought I would feature one of my favorites.  For some reason, I haven’t made this in quite some time but I really do love the combination of cilantro and lime.  I pair this up with some brown rice or quinoa and you have a wonderfully easy, and flavorful dish.


4-5 chicken breasts, washed and trimmed
14 ounces of chopped tomatoes
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 lime, juiced
1/2 onion, chopped
1- 14 ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
4 garlic cloves, smashed
1 handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of chili powder (I used chipotle chili powder)
Salt and pepper
Dash of cayenne


Place everything in the crock pot and give it a good stir to coat everything and mix all of the spices.  Cook on low for 4+ hours.  Serve over brown rice or quinoa.  You can also chop the chicken and use in fajitas or tacos.

  1. I made this recipe lastnight and we really enjoyed it! My tastebuds thank you! I used chicken drumsticks since it’s what I had .. also used a can of diced tomatoes with green chillies instead of the chopped tomatoes and jalapeno peppers and it worked well, not too spicy either. I also doubled the cilantro since I really like cilantro. Very flavorful and lime-ey too. Served over spanish rice (which absorbed some of the yummy juice) with mango avocado salad. Will definitely be making this throughout the summer. Did I say Thank you? 😀
